LOS ANGELES – Since BioWare isn’t making BioWare-style games at the moment, Assassin’s Creed is here to take up the mantle. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey takes place in ancient Greece and features very similar gameplay to last year’s Egyptian adventure, Assassin’s Creed Origins. The big difference, though, is that Odyssey will give players a chance to shape the storyline through character selection, dialogue choices and narrative decisions.

Your actions will shape the world around you – and if you’re so inclined, your honeyed words can also woo some Mediterranean NPCs.

I went hands-on with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which is coming out October 8 for PC, PS4 and Xbox. In the interest of full disclosure, I am admittedly an easy sell when it comes to Assassin’s Creed games, but I was still glued to my seat for the entire hour of the demo. I took control of Kassandra and Alexios: two Spartan warriors who hope to shift the balance of power during the Peloponnesian War, circa 400 B.C.
